And, Or and Not

Every GraphQL search filter can use and, or and not operators.

GraphQL syntax uses infix notation, so: “a and b” is a, and: { b }, “a or b or c” is a, or: { b, or: c }, and “not” is a prefix (not:).

Example: Posts that do not have “GraphQL” in the title.

queryPost(filter: { not: { title: { allofterms: "GraphQL"} } } ) { ... }

Example: Posts that have “GraphQL” or “Dgraph” in the title.

queryPost(filter: {
    title: { allofterms: "GraphQL"},
    or: { title: { allofterms: "Dgraph" } }
  } ) { ... }

Example: Posts that have “GraphQL” and “Dgraph” in the title.

queryPost(filter: {
    title: { allofterms: "GraphQL"},
    and: { title: { allofterms: "Dgraph" } }
  } ) { ... }

The “and” operator is implicit for a single filter object, if the fields don’t overlap. For example, above the and is required because title is in both filters, whereas below, and is not required.

queryPost(filter: {
    title: { allofterms: "GraphQL" },
    datePublished: { ge: "2020-06-15" }
  } ) { ... }

Example: Posts that have “GraphQL” in the title, or have the tag “GraphQL” and mention “Dgraph” in the title

queryPost(filter: {
    title: { allofterms: "GraphQL"},
    or: { title: { allofterms: "Dgraph" }, tags: { eq: "GraphQL" } }
  } ) { ... }

The and and or filter both accept a list of filters. Per the GraphQL specification, non-list filters are coerced into a list. This provides backwards compatibility while allowing for more complex filters.

Example: Query for posts that have GraphQL in the title but that lack the GraphQL tag, or that have Dgraph in the title but lack the Dgraph tag.

queryPost(filter: {
    or: [
      and: [{ title: { allofterms: "GraphQL" } }, { not: { tags: { eq: "GraphQL" } } }]
      and: [{ title: { allofterms: "Dgraph" } }, { not: { tags: { eq: "Dgraph" } } }]
    ]
  } ) { ... }
